Liquitex Gel Mediums add body to thinner paint for impasto techniques as well as extending color volume and adding transparency. Gels also add "open time" as they tend to dry slower than thinner paint films. Gel Mediums can modify acrylic paints in a variety of ways and, since they contain acrylic resins, tend to improve adhesion and durability.
The product of over 50 years experience in high quality acrylic paint and art supplies, Liquitex Gel Mediums can add texture, enhance color and increase transparency within your work.
Gloss Gel - Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium is excellent for retaining brush marks while slowing the drying time and adding body to the paint. Mix with transparent colors for impasto glazes of great depth and brilliance. Excellent for transferring printed images.
